What is Dahn’s World?

On Saturday, numerous reports claimed that HYBE-affiliated labels like GFRIEND and LE SERAFIM, as well as BTS, are linked to the Dahn World cult. Dahn World, which was founded by Lee Seung Heon, believes that man and god are one and the same, and worships the goddess of space, Mago. Mago was also the last single released by GFRIEND before they split up which made a section of fans believe the rumour. This news came on a day when BTS was once again linked to chart manipulation allegations.

Adding to the allegations is the fact that the majority of BTS members studied at Global Cyber University. This university was founded by the same person who started Dahn’s World. The situation became more complex when Bang Hi Syuk, the founder of HYBE, also faced accusations of stealing concepts from other artists. Replying to the chart manipulation claims, HYBE rolled out a statement earlier vowing to take legal action.

“We are collecting evidence of malicious postings through real-time monitoring as we speak,” it said. “We will maintain a zero-tolerance policy and pursue this matter rigorously, without leniency or settlements.”
